Energy-neutral design is a technique which employs environmentally-friendly practices and low energy consumption throughout the process of development and it is the framework for this floating villa by vanOmmeren architects. The sustainable structure is positioned near the historic center of Haarlem -- a must-see for travelers.
The Haarlem Shuffle is an exceptional rectangular composition that relies on wood cladding, as well as open and closed facade elements, to maximize light exposure and scenery. Meeting the owner's high standards and desire for sustainable lodging, there is no gas connection on board and the floating villa is equipped with two heat pumps, as well as a solar-paneled roof that guarantees comfortable and energy-neutral living.
